Otiorhynchus (Lixorrhynchus) deceptorius sp. n. and O. (L.) incisus sp. n. from northern Morocco are described and illustrated. Both new species are superficially similar to Mirorhynchus bellus MAGNANO, 2003 based on the conspicuously laterally incised rostrum. The erroneous indication of M. bellus from Cyprus is corrected here to Crete
